Woodland Opera House

You are here Home  > Theaters >  Woodland Opera House

The original opera house on the site burnt down in 1892, and was rebuilt three years later in 1895. It is from the fire, however, that the building’s resident ghost is believed to have stemmed. Theatre patrons have reported seen the apparition of a disgruntled fireman who died in the blaze, and is forever searching for the person that committed the act of arson that burnt down the opera house, as well as a large proportion of the historic district.

  1. I use to live in woodland Cal when my daughter was 5 in the late 80s an we took the tour In the Opera House . I loved it but I did experience a presents of something or someone an my feeling was strong that there was a spirit an where I was standing it was freezing for a moment !! I’m an Empath an have dealt with it since I was about 10 yrs old . Woodland was a quaint place to live an I still miss it .

  2. I am a working musician and sound engineer. Have done numerous shows in this venue and can verify that it is haunted by several spirits. They all seem playful and somewhat friendly. So far….
